Shearman & Sterling LLP is a mainstay of the New York finance market, where it has established extremely strong relationships with financial institutions, as well as an increasing number of direct lenders. The team expanded significantly in 2019 following the arrival of former Allen & Overy LLP partners Michael Chernick and Alan Rockwell, who both have long track records serving the market. Rockwell joins the highly rated Maura O’Sullivan as practice head, adding weight to a team that includes global co-head of leveraged finance Joshua Thompson. The team, which also includes the well regarded capital markets expert Jonathan DeSantis, works closely with colleagues in key regions such as Europe and Asia. The firm also offers corporate and private equity borrowers a strong range of expertise, with Gus Atiyah coming highly recommended.
